The Grave Warden's Ashes are a key item in Dark Souls III. They are one of several umbral ashes that can be found throughout the course of the game.

In-Game Description

Umbral ash of the grave warden of the catacombs of Carthus. With this, the shrine handmaid will prepare new items.
The old man began as a squire, carrying his master's accoutrements. He ended his days a grave warden, and carried them still.


Found in the Catacombs of Carthus.

From the Catacombs of Carthus bonfire, turn left and go downstairs. Climb up any of the two sets of stairs found on the nearby wall (one of them hidden behind an illusory wall). The ashes are on a corpse lying at the far end of this area, guarded by three Skeleton Swordsmen.


Extends the Shrine Handmaid's inventory to include the following items:

Available Item Cost
Carthus Rouge 1,000
3 Ember 2,500
Kukri 50
Yellow Bug Pellet 1,500
